Renderosity's Pot O' Gold Grab Bag Is Here!
The Renderosity MarketPlace is offering you the chance to have a little 'Luck of The Irish' this season by including a FREE product with your next purchase of $5 or more. All you have to do is add the 'Grab Bag' product (seen below) to your cart and proceed, as normal, through the checkout process. Once the transaction has been completed, you can visit the 'My Accout' page and claim your product.
This Grab Bag product will be randomly selected from the fifty (50) great products you see below. There will also be random *Gift Certificates to the Renderosity MarketPlace included in the Pot!
*Gift Certificates awarded during this promotion are valid 30 days from the time of receipt.
Renderosity's software will check an individual's buying history to ensure that the product added as the free product is not already owned by the buyer.
For this Pot O' Gold special you can make as many transactions as you wish and receive all the Grab Bag products available! You will only be allowed, however, to checkout with one (1) free Grab Bag item at a time.
You Only Have 7 Days!
The free Grab Bag product promotion will only be available from Monday, March 14th through Sunday, March 20th at 11:59pm (cst).
Please do not use this promotion to gift products to other members. The recipient will not be able to receive the free grab bag product.
Special Thanks to these participating Vendors and their products for making this promotion possible!
While the grab bag is a nice idea, it needs some serious work. I just got a character for V4. I can't stand V4 (I don't use the 4th generation Daz figures at all only the second and third generations), so this is useless to me, so I probably won't even download the item. Thank you to the vendors that are participating, though. Hopefully other people have more "luck" than I do when it comes to this event.
I agree with others, this is nice of the vendors but a random item that I might not ever use is not encouraging for me to shop. It would have been nice if these products were setup to check at $0.00 if you purchase another item at $5.00 or more. Each $5.00 would grant another one of these becoming free in your cart. Besides looking at the items above.. all the ones I like I already own. There is only one other item in there that I'd love to have.. but look at the odds of me getting it. I'll wait to see if March has anything else coming. The 7 days was nice, but my credit card has been sleeping since then.
Thank you for this, there are some things on the list that I would really, really want, but anything is always appreciated. Would it make me buy something just to get a chance at something for free? No. Does it keep me coming back to Renderosity? Yes
The idea behind Renderosity Grab Bags is to gather a wide range of products from interested participating vendors and offer them as free products as a way to reward those who’ve made a purchase. Although we realize that certain products may not be on the top of your wish list, we try to provide a selection of products that will appeal to the Renderosity Community as a whole. This is not intended to be a ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’ offer and shouldn’t be viewed as such. Instead, please treat this as a fun and interactive way of receiving a free product you can now add to your digital content library. Just like in the retail world "grab bag" promotions, you don't have any idea of what might be in that brown paper bag:) We were careful to list all fifty (50) products in our Grab Bag article so that our buyers would know the pool of products from which they could potentially randomly receive
Thanks for the explanation, StaceyG! Just want to make sure my first reply isn't taken the wrong way: I really LOVE the concept of getting a random item, most of the time items I would have never bought but then I actually grow to like. My only peeve with this is that with the good old brown paper bag you always got a standalone item. It might not have been what you were hoping for, but at least it was usable on its own. But here we get some items that are completely useless without their pre-requisite item. Those items will never be used (because they CANNOT be used), so they won't help promoting the vendor, either. And now I'll go and play with some of those items I would have never bought but REALLY love by now... ;)
